To be fair, Townshend has had many supporting guitar players backing him up, and though he's an amazing rhythm player, he's not really the best lead player. Daltrey's solo stuff is marginal at best. The set list looks to be mostly Who music, so I'd say Go For It!

i did like the Daltrey sings Townsend that was done w/ a symphony some time ago. Of course the highlight for me was when Pete came out at the end for Behind Blue Eyes (I think?). Although The Who-> have been a central point of my love for music (even more than the Dead) I never looked at Pete as the end all be all for guitarist as I do Garcia.
I never been able to put ny finger on it really, Alot probably has to do w/ equal parts Quadraphenia and Tommy with a healthy dose of plain old teen angst. Even at 45 I still fell that when I listen to their (pete really) music.
Would I go ? You Better You Bet!
